and in north dakota. in mississippi and north dakota, the regulations are targeting the last remaining clinic in the state. abortion is being effectively banned in states all across the country, in states where republicans have governing power. in every state, there's a fight on to try to protect this right that american women are supposed to have to access abortion services. but through all of the means they have tried over the years, nothing has ever been as effective for the radical anti-abortion movement in this country as the election of veto proof republican majorities in the legislatures in multiple u.s. states in 2010. since then, since 2010 and since the 2012 election in particular when they picked up the pace, the republican party is now doing the work for them. joining us now for the interview tonight is tammy, the director of the red river women's clinic of fargo, north dakota, and julie birkhart. tammy and julie, i've talked to both of you over the years months and years, great to have you here in person. >> thank you so much for having us. >> julie, let me ask you first, opening

. north dakota organized and the georgia dairymendum. six weeks after the sioux city strike began, it was all over. although scattered protests continued throughout the nation, they were faint echoes of the anger that spilled over at sioux city. why was the strike unsuccessful? the milk dealers could find enough milk supply somewhere to thwart the desires of the dairy farmer. so there didn't seem to be much that farmers could do to improve their general lot. not individual action, not institutional activity, not even group protests and violence. economic analyst richard gill explains why farmers couldn't find their way out of this terrible economic predicament. there are really two points to be made here. the first is that the dairy farmers in sioux city and north dakota and georgia were not being at all irrational in trying to curtail milk supplies on the market. the reason it made sense from their point of view is that the demand for milk, like the demand for most agricultural products, tends to be what economists describe as inelastic. what this means is that consumer demand fo
